J.D. Vance Torches NBC’s Kristen Welker Over Biden Using Lawfare To Target Trump

Last Updated 2 weeks by Amnon J. Jobi | Amnon Front Page

Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH) slammed left-wing NBC News host Kristen Welker during an interview on Sunday over President Joe Biden’s political prosecutions against former President Donald Trump.

Vance made the remarks during an interview on the network’s “Meet The Press” program when asked if Trump would go after the Biden family if he were to win in November.

“Well, first of all, Kristen, I find it interesting how much the media and the Democrats have lost their mind over this particular quote,” he said. “Donald Trump is talking about appointing a special prosecutor to investigate Joe Biden for wrongdoing. Joe Biden has done exactly that for the last few years and has done far more in addition to that to engage in a campaign of lawfare against his political opposition. I think what Donald Trump is simply saying is we ought to investigate the prior administration.”

“There are obviously many instances of wrongdoing,” he continued. “The House Oversight Committee has identified a number of corrupt business transactions that may or may not be criminal. Of course you have to investigate to find out. So I think Donald Trump’s saying, ‘look, let’s do the basic work of investigating wrongdoing,’ is a totally reasonable thing for him to do. And frankly, the Biden administration has done far worse. So if you think that what Donald Trump is proposing is a threat to democracy, isn’t what Biden has already done a massive threat to our system of law and government?”

Welker tried to absolve Biden from the controversy by noting that he did not directly hire the special prosecutor in the Trump cases.

“I have to reject the premise here. Joe Biden appointed the Attorney General, Merrick Garland, who of course answers to Joe Biden, can be fired by Joe Biden,” Vance fired back. “So the idea that the Biden administration has nothing to do with the appointment of the special prosecutor, I think, completely betrays a misunderstanding of how our system of government actually works. And of course, Kristen, we have to make this point, Kristen, that the prosecution of Donald Trump in New York, which I think now has fundamentally been thrown in doubt by this immunity case, one of the main guys was a Department of Justice official in the Biden administration who jumped ship to join a local prosecutor’s office to go after Donald Trump.”

When Welker again tried to downplay the ties between the Biden administration and the criminal cases against Trump, Vance fired back: “Well, Kristen, first of all you said that it happens all the time, that the number three person in the Department of Justice jumped ship to join a local prosecutor’s office to go after the president’s political opponent? I don’t think that’s ever happened in the history of American democracy. And I don’t think that we should legitimize it.”
